The Captain Swing Quartet was originally intended as one of four Prologues for each of the quarters of Weirdo, that explained a little of The Captain’s story in this part of Norfolk, including the trial and subsequent execution of Richard Nockolds, whose crime had been to try and teach the weavers of St Augustine's in Norwich how to read. It morphed into a collaboration between myself and the composer and musician Paul A Murphy, who vividly brought alive a haunted landscape with an eerie musical score fashioned by his Orchaostra, featuring Michael Meekin on acoustic Flying V and the stunning vocal talents of Rosie Howell.
Cathi was a guest on BBC Radio 4's obituary show 'Last Word' on 19/09/08 where along with crime historian James Norton she discussed the amazing life of Harry 'Tanky' Challenor, a key figure in the Metropolitan Police force in the 1960's. The host is Matthew Bannister.
